Hymn. O God of Bethel #650
Scripture Lessons: Ephesians 3:14-21
Prayer: O God of a thousand names and faces, mother and father of all life on earth, you who live in the cells of all life, Teach us to know and love you.
Lady of peace, of love, and of wisdom, Lord of all the stars and planets, best consoles, inward guest, Teach us to know and love you.
Giver of gifts and light of our hearts, fill the inmost depths of our hearts, And teach us to know and love you.
Wash what is soiled, heal what is wounded, bend what is rigid, warm what is frigid, And teach us to know and love you.
Restore to us our true humanity, And teach us to know and love you. (a prayer written by Sharon Owens and published in No Longer Strangers.)
